National Public Radio remembers Pete Seeger this way:
"Bringing people together and getting them to sing out may be one of Pete Seeger's greatest legacies. But when it came to saving the world, Tao Rodriguez Seeger says, his grandfather ultimately seemed to question whether the guitar was mightier than the sword.
[It] troubled him, troubled him deeply that technology was so advanced but our emotional state was so inadequate to cope, that with a push of a button, in a fit of rage, we could wipe ourselves off the face of the Earth. And he really wanted to fix that and always felt like he failed," Rodriguez Seeger says.
But if Pete Seeger didn't save the world, he certainly did change the lives of millions of people by leading them to sing, to take action and to at least consider his dream of what society could be."
We remember him this way:
These hearty singers represented Anna Crusis Women's Choir late night at Tabu on January 22, 2014. They trudged through a foot of snow in sub-zero temperatures to sing in a benefit for Women Organized Against Rape. Their dedication and thirst for libations did not go unnoticed!
Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming concert...

The beginning of a new year is a great time to reflect on our values and make shifts in our actions to accurately mirror our beliefs and goals.
Anna Crusis Women's Choir is committed to reducing our ecological footprint and doing our part to support our mother earth. We carpool, we recycle, we reuse, we try to protect our limited resouces.
Because of this shared comittment, it makes sense to look at our institutional decisions, shifting and revising as we learn more and have more opportunities.
For this reason, we are proud to announce that we have taken another small step and our website is now hosted by GreenGeeks.com.
GreenGeeks compensates for the polluting power they pull from the grid by purchasing wind energy credits for the energy they consume from the grid. In fact they replace, with wind power, 3 times the amount of energy used by their servers.
